The tune features mainly guitar with an R&B sound that actually suits Justin well.
In that regard, it’s very similar lyrically and stylistically to his previously released song “Recovery.” They’re both a more sophisticated sound for the pop singer.
The songs are reportedly inspired by his break up with Selena Gomez. He sings about getting let down pretty hard during the break up. Apparently, she cut him off pretty decisively. Justin sings:
No I didn’t think you would let me down that easy (oh no, girl)
And I didn’t think it was over
Until you walked away
Like it was nothing, baby
Justin expresses that he knew what he did was wrong and understands why he was kicked to the curb, but he expected more, like a “goodbye.”
So far, the “Music Mondays” series includes “Bad Day,” “Recovery,” “Heartbreaker,” “All That Matters,” and “Hold Tight.”
For his part, he says the songs are the most personal he’s ever sung and represent his feelings in musical form.
